OUR MARKET SCHEDULE UNTIL END OF YEAR
If you cannot view this link at the SPLG Market Calendar 2014 then here is the scoop! We are open weeks of 12/1 and 12/15 then closed for TWO weeks including week of Christmas and New Years.
MARKET VARIETY IS EXPLODING
Salmon is back! Lamb is coming end of December. Medjool dates are back. First time ever: brussel sprouts! Garlic and ginger are being offered for first time ever-for customer convenience. The diverse selection of kales and eggplant will astound you. Papayas are abundant.
FRUIT THIS WEEK
We have the largest fugis I have ever seen and I’ve already eaten 1 BIG one. Super juicy! Among other things, we are featuring black sapote, sunburst tangerines, red d’anjou pears, and more braeburns. The quality of our produce is something I am really proud of and our fruit is no exception. Please review the variety as I cannot list it all.
HOLIDAY PARTY ON DEC. 6TH
Hope to see you this Saturday at 7PM. Please DON’T arrive at 530PM (like our normally scheduled potluck socials). Bring a heavy hors d’oeuvre to share? There will be lots of friendship, frivolity, fire, and food!
WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST CUSTOMERS!
Once you have submitted your order, if in doubt about what you owe, you can always confirm what you have been charged for by checking your account history and viewing your most current invoice. Instructions on how to do that are on our Q&A page under the question entitled Since you don’t provide an invoice with delivery, how do I know what I owe? Also, since your vegetables are picked fresh within 24 hours of delivery, they should be lasting for WEEKS in your refrigerator. When you accept delivery, please take a few minutes to inspect your order to protect your vegetables from unnecessary spoilage. Lastly, it is imperative that you understand our policy on Unclaimed Orders found on our Q&A page. When you make a purchase you are agreeing to abide by this policy.
Our Market has high standards for what it sells. Despite that—as seasons transition—the challenges of evolving weather and pesky insects can take its toll on the crops. Market Growers are being very selective about what they are willing to present to you. No, it won’t always be picture perfect (which is part of its charm) and sometimes an insect is going to evade capture! But we won’t send you anything that we wouldn’t eat ourselves. If for any reason we have goofed and you are dissatisfied, please report it to me right away so we can rectify the situation. That’s how we get better and we all benefit from that. Your satisfaction is key to our success as a resource for St. Petersburgs’ lovers of chemical-free, organically & locally grown vegetables.
